Anwar Ibrahim’s paternal grandfather was Tamil Hindu. So, he should not harp too much on Islam.
Anyone who harps on Islam, and Melayu Melayu Melayu, not fit to be Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Those who harp on Islam Islam Islam, Melayu Melayu Melayu, are only interested in plundering the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts under the guise of bangsa, agama, negara and derma.
The content of hate speeches . . . demonise, criminalise, dehumanise, neutralise, isolate, marginalise, eliminate, exterminate . . . terrorist attacks and suicide bombings follow.
Lawmakers are sworn on Oath to uphold, respect, honour and defend the Constitution.
It’s a contradiction in terms to talk about defending Islam.
Islam is not about law but sin.
The law is not about sin.
No law, no crime.
The sins in Islam may not be crimes in law.
According to jurisprudence, God is not a source in law.
The Supreme Court of India, for example, ruled that syariah is not law but based on a person’s willingness to accept it.
Syariah is not based on customary practices which may have force of law.
It would be unconstitutional to impose syariah on anyone.
There are parallels between Islam and communism, except for the latter being silent on God.
Buddhism is also silent on God.
There’s no God in Hinduism but a great spirit that permeates everything. Hindus are seekers with or without the help of Knowers (Guru). Seeking is about spiritualism.
The Holy Bible, the Word of God, is about the spiritual nature of truth.
God is not about God, Word is not about God but the spiritual nature of Truth.
Spiritual is not about spiritualism.
Islam is against rule of law, the basis of the Constitution.
Islam also doesn’t recognise international law which is based on international customary practices which have force of law.
Human rights is the basis of international law.
Islam does not recognise human rights, freedom of conscience, free speech, democracy, multiparty elections, and the universality and commonality of citizenship.
Anwar Ibrahim’s pardon was about the law, not the truth.
Anwar’s pardon was based on a technicality.
He was convicted of a victimless offence. There’s no law on that, as pointed out by the Bar Council in a statement on Sodomy 2.
This may be the reason the Agong pardoned Anwar.
What the Agong is supposed to have said about the Sodomy 2 conviction came from Anwar.
The court is not about ethics, moral values, theology, sin, God, justice or the truth.
The court is about law. The Bar Council statement on Sodomy 2 was about law. So, the question that arises is how the superior courts could convict Anwar on Sodomy 2.
As BULLDOZER Mahathir and Daim Zainuddin pointed out, it was Anwar who initiated Sodomy 1 by instructing his secretary to lodge a police report against a book of allegations against him.
Instead of addressing the charges against him in Sodomy 1, Anwar chose to speak of the case as a political conspiracy. He did not provide any details.
He was acquitted of sodomy upon appeal.
The corruption conviction, part of Sodomy 1, was upheld.
Sodomy 2 was allegedly a case of “old habits die hard”.
Again, he claimed the case was a political conspiracy against him. He provided some details this time but chose to make a statement from the dock. Since he was not cross examined, the test of the burden of proof shifted to the “balance of probabilities” (51/49) used in civil cases.
The rest is history.
According to media reports, Anwar wants to scrap anti-sodomy laws. Yet, he talks about Islamic values.
He supports LGBTQF (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queers, freaks) but has yet to come clean on his sexual preferences.
Muslims say their religion is against sodomy. So, they will not support Anwar to be Prime Minister after Mahathir. PAS and Hadi Awang have already said Anwar should not be Prime Minister.
At present, except for less than half of PKR, no one supports Anwar’s bid for the premiership.
Mahathir conceded that he became Prime Minister because of DAP. So, why should Anwar be PM after Mahathir?
Anwar became irrelevant the moment Mahathir defected to the Opposition. It was because of Mahathir that PKR was formed.
Anwar has been talking about the Reform Agenda for the last 20 years but has never spelled it out.
It would be a grave error of judgment to allow Anwar to push out his wife in the hope that Mahathir will appoint him as DPM.
If Wan Azizah quits, Mahathir will scrap the DPM post.
Wan Azizah, as DPM, should take over after Mahathir.
If she can be appointed DPM, she’s qualified to be PM.
It’s Anwar who keeps harping in the media about him taking over from Mahathir. The Prime Minister should not humour him.
BULLDOZER has a limited vision. He’s a pragmatist.
He wants to put in place a political system which will ensure, for the next 40 years, that a small group of Malay capitalists can accumulate capital to try and match the Chinese with capital.
These capitalists allegedly created May 13 to seize power and kill the idea of a strong Opposition in Parliament.
After 1969, we had to wait until 2008 to have a strong Opposition in Parliament.
After 2019, it will take another 40 years for a strong Opposition to emerge in Parliament.
Mahathir is doing what Razak did in 1969 except there’s no May 13.
No one can pull off the same trick twice. Hence, no May 13.
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
It does not matter who rules in Putrajaya.
What matters is a strong Opposition in Parliament i.e. no two thirds majority for the ruling party. A strong Opposition can unearth all the scandals in gov’t.
Mahathir is against strong Malay parties making up the Opposition.
When the ISA was in force, the focus was on killing Malay Opposition parties and weakening the Opposition in Parliament.
Mahathir wants Malay lawmakers in gov’t by hook or crook. It’s not just about Bersatu.
At the same time, he wants to eliminate Hadi and PAS. He blames PAS for causing Malay disunity. The RM90m and RM200m probes will be used to force PAS to get rid of Hadi. The party will split again.
Is it any wonder that Hadi and PAS ran to see Mahathir recently, cringing, crawling and grovelling? Their so-called support for Mahathir in Parliament and for him to complete a full term, is just to cover their shame.
Mahathir cannot hang around after mid-2021. The longer he stays in office, the more political damage he will do, not only to the Opposition but Sabah and Sarawak.
Those who defect to Bersatu will not win GE15. The Malays will not vote for them. Except for the Gen Y, Malays will not vote for PH.
The Opposition cannot be trusted. They are potential frogs. It’s better for the people to vote for at least some independent lawmakers. This is an idea whose time has come.
With Putrajaya under PH regaining the two-thirds majority in Parliament, the people can write off Opposition lawmakers.
The NGOs, the social media, and the court of public opinion should fill the vacuum left behind by the crumbling Opposition.
The mainstream media is dead.
Not even one alternative media is breaking even.
So, they have become highly vulnerable.
